february 5-th is national weatherpersons day. a day we like to celebrate here at channel two. forecasting in western nevada can be challenging but it can also be a lot of fun. one of our meteorologists, angela schilling joins us live in the newsroom - angela, what makes someone want to become a meteorologist? since i was a kid, i always knew i wanted to do something with science or math. eventually i realized meteorology was the right fit for me. it was neat talking to other meteorologists today and hearing their stories. one person i talked to is not only a coworker, but also a mentor of mine here at channel two. the best kind of jobs are the ones you enjoy doing. mike alger: "i say if it's your passion, then do it." for some meteorologists their interest in weather started at a young age. alex hoon now works for the national weather service in reno, but he grew up in tornado alley. alex hoon: "i went to boyscout
6:46 pm
old, and i saw a tornado." alex hoon: "ever since then i've been fascinated with the weather." my story is somewhat similar to mike's - always knowing i had an interest in science, but not knowing exactly i wanted to study weather until later in life when... i began enjoying weather classes in college backgrounds, the weather was something that i could drive around, look at the clouds and say hey i know what's going on up there." i've heard this from many meteorologists - that experiencing weather is what got them interested in it. marvin boyd came to reno from north carolina. he loves all types of weather. marvin boyd: "so from a scale from of one to ten how would you rate yourself as far as being a weather nerd? probably an watch." alex hoon has grown to love western weather as well. alex hoon: "i used to really love severe weather, but in recent years i've actually learned to love fire weather alot."
6:47 pm
like to be wrong. angela schilling: "are you competitive? do you like to get it right? mike alger: i'm learning a little bit, if anything this job will teach you humility." western nevada is a unique place to forecast for. shane snyder: "i would say the mountains make it very difficult at times." mike alger: "the weather is challenging, but that's what makes it fun." so if you have a passion for something go for it. if you want to become a meteorologist, u-n-r does have an atmospheric sciences program. be prepared to take lots of math and physics classes, but if you have a passion for it, the sky is the limit. covering the two news. after some overnight and morning cloudiness, the skies should clear off as saturday progresses, and we will be looking at a mostly sunny super bowl weekend. temperatures will
